I really like this base a lot. This is a very, very, dense and chunkier scone. This tastes more like an energy bar rather than a scone. This is one of those batters that you can add whatever your tastes desires. This specific fruit combo is a little more sophisticated. Not a true kid friendly scone. I am going to try again and add more kid friendly ingredients, i.e., chocolate chips, pretzels, marshmallows, cashews, etc.
For this particular batch, I added dried cherries, blanched almonds (I wanted to use salted, but didn’t have), raisins, flax seeds, oats and dried figs. I really like these. They are best eaten the day they are baked (like most scones), but are great the next day crumbled up and sprinkled over yogurt!
